Colossians 3:16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to God.
A normal Christian life should be one that is filled with the word, that the Spirit may bubble over with praise and lauding melodies from within the believers. The word of the Lord must have adequate room within us that it may operate and minister the riches of Christ into our inner being. The riches of Christ (Eph. 3:8) are in His word. Such a rich word must inhabit us richly.

This reading schedule is very good.
We need to be occupied with God’s word and let the word of God occupy us!
Joshua 1:8 This book of the law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall muse upon it day and night …
“Joshua was to be occupied with God’s word and let the word occupy him (cf. Col 3:16). By being occupied and filled with the word, he would have prosperity and success in taking the God-promised good land.” (Recovery Version, v. 8, note 1)
